The HERITAGE TROPHY

 

The Heritage Trophy is a perpetual trophy sponsored jointly by Heritage Bank and Toowoomba Stamp Club. It is designed to encourage collectors who may not have previously exhibited, and is adjudicated by nationally-acredited judges provided by QPC.

The theme each year is generally Exhibitor's Choice. Occasionally the TSC will set a particular theme on a topical subject, and if this is done it will be announced on our website by 31 December of the preceding year. The full rules for the Heritage Trophy are set out here.
